Ethical Silk


All lingerie lovers will recognise the familiar feeling of silk fabric against their skin – Luxurious, soft and smooth. As a breathable fabric and a natural temperature regulator, silk helps the body to retain heat in cold weather and expel excess heat in hot weather. Therefore making silk the ideal wardrobe staple and perfect for your Spring/Summer update…

Ethical Silk

As I’m sure you know – Silk is made using the cocoons of silk moths. Woven by the silkworm, the cocoon is made up of a single silk fibre and this, incredibly, can produce thread of up to 1,000 metres.

Traditionally silk farmers boil the cocoons to kill the moths and harvest their cocoons. However, ethical silk (even though rarer and much more expensive to produce), allows the moths to mature and emerge unscathed from their cocoons before production can begin. Ethical silk is spun much in the same way as cotton or hemp and produces a warmer and softer fabric.

 

About the Brand | Anne Wiggins London

As a Buddist for over 20 years, Anne was determined to produce her collection ethically without allowing the silkworms producing the silk for her garments to suffer. Free from the obligation to produce in large quantities, Anne painstakingly sourced the finest raw materials and the best craftsmen using traditional artisan techniques. At no stage in the production process are people exploited.

 

The result? A simple and chic collection of exceptional quality and ethics. These are investment pieces that will take you through the seasons, whether you choose to wear them indoors or out.
